Nearly half the youth in the US are growing up fatherless.
CFC’s Life on Life mentoring project helps these youth, and any youth, by providing a caring, Christian friend that shows up for them.
Center for Champions helps to meet the needs of at-risk youth, fatherless youth and any youth that can benefit from a mentoring relationship. We do this through 4 program components: Life on Life Mentoring, Rooted Site Mentoring, Rooted Teens and Parent Outreach.
The mission of Center for Champions is to share the love of Jesus through life on life mentoring relationships where youth and families find hope, values and skills in order to discover God’s plan for their lives and be a positive influence in their communities.
